Stars and (Tabby?!) Stripes Forever

Happy Independence day! I am wearing my stripes today in celebration. Ok, I know, I wear my stripes every day, I just thought it sounded good. I've celebrated the day in a number of ways, perhaps foremost by sleeping. Ms C took this picture because she thought the angle accented my Jackelope-ishness:

Did you notice in the picture above I have a white tuxi-spot in the middle of my neck? Ms. C thinks it is terribly sweet!

I have a new favorite hobby. After chasing and carrying around my favorite toy, the orange furrymouse, I like to drop it into Mr. R's shoe for an extra challenge. Ms. C caught me at a lazy moment when I was resting with both of my front paws in the shoe. Don't you think it fits me well?

Do you think it looks like I'm singing? I like to pretend that this is what it's about, but actually I'm just getting ready to rest again. Ms. C still has an injured finger so she cannot play her piano, so someone may as well make good use of it:

I hope everyone who's celebrating has a fun, safe holiday!

I love that really sleepy look you have in the photo with your paws in Mr. R's shoe! And you do have lovely stripes!

Take good are of Ms.C!

You are all twisted up and upside-down! That little white spot is just for kissing.

That's the coolest mousie, Abby. I think I would like it, too..and "storing" it in Mr. R's shoe is very convenient-add's a nice foot-frou to it for later!

Happy 4th!

That angle seems to lend itself to napping! We do not think that shoe fits you all that well, Abby, but it is a good hiding spot for toys.
